Early Voting Ended Today - 5 Days Until Election Day

Today, early voting ended.

Tuesday April 7, 2009 polls open at 6:00 am.

Tonight, I had an experience that captures what politics should be about.

I called an angry voter to apologize for a misunderstanding and earned her vote tonight.

We exchanged our hopes, dreams and fears for the future of Lake in the Hills and you know what, we had something in common.  We both want to best for our village and want to keep it as a welcoming place for working families to live and raise their families.

We did not agree on every point but we found common ground without disrespecting one another. 

I did not call her with an agenda nor was it my intention to sway her one way or another. 

I wanted her to know that I care. 

She appreciated the time and pledged her vote.

I was and continue to be humbled by this encounter. This is precisely why I entered this race.

Voters - if you trust me with your vote on Tuesday - I promise to do the same for you.

I will listen.

I will share.

I will represent you.

Elect me - Denise Barreto to the Village of Lake in the Hills Board of Trustees.

  1. You have my vote. Unfortunately, I live in Iowa, so it won't count. As I can attest, as someone who personally and professionally knows Denise Barreto, she has the integrity and courage to do a stellar job on the LITH Board of Trustees. She has my full endorsement!
